“This book covers everything; from introducing the disease, to different disc diseases by region, standard medical treatments, alternative treatments and self-care, along with much more. The alternative treatments were really great: acupuncture, rolfing, and more. It really helped inform me on the disease, since my friend just got diagnosed with it. Great book for those suffering. I gave it to my friend he says he’s learned a lot.”

“This was comprehensive in every sense of the word. A friend of mine has suffered from this disease for many years, so I thought I would read this and see if it would be something worthwhile passing on to him. Indeed it was. This book covers the whole gamut; from introducing the disease, to different disc diseases by region, standard medical treatments, alternative treatments and self-care, along with much more. The alternative treatments were especially fascinating: acupuncture, rolfing, and more. Great book for those suffering. My friend already says he’s learned a lot.”

Dysautonomia, POTS Syndrome

Informative,
Good collection of information for those newly diagnosed. Only wish we had more for those of us older patients 20-50 age range. Truly believe it is hereditary and research should continue to look there. Overall great read to sort out the mess of what POTS is.
-Amanda Isaacson

Excellent book and easy to read for a medical information book yet has tons of information,
A very helpful and easy to read book. Does a good job of covering signs and symptoms, causes and treatments, and living with POTS. Much better than most medical information books… highly recommended!

Great information on POTS,
I have a friend who has been diagnosed with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), or dysautonomia. I had absolutely no idea what this was or how I could possibly be supportive, so I went searching for more information. I came across this very detailed and informative book by Frederick Earlstein. There is great information here about what POTS is, signs and symptoms, causes and treatment for it and tips for living with POTS. I particularly appreciated the information on living with POTS and the chapter on research on resources to get additional information. A very well-written and well-organized book on an elusive disorder.

I had already read a lot of this information over the last couple of years, but…
I had already read a lot of this information over the last couple of years, but it was a good refresher for me and would be good for someone newly diagnosed. I was really blown away by how much effort the author put into understanding his niece’s condition. Great uncle! I read a lot of these short Kindle ebooks especially on health issues and this one was a lot better writing quality and content than many I have tried.

Thank Heavens for this book! I was recently diagnosed …,
Thank Heavens for this book! I was recently diagnosed with dysautonomia and POTS after living with it for nearly 55 years. I had no idea I had such a thing; never heard of it. But then after I was diagnosed I found I still had no idea how to LIVE with it. Then I had a crisis and found myself on the floor….again. That was when I began to research this topic and found Amazon had books and even medical assist items for this. When the book came I sat right down and devoured it! Now, I know I can have a life again, that it is rare, but manageable with a few tips and tricks listed in the book. Thank you so much for writing a book that lay people can understand. I plan on buying another for my doctor and then more copies for all those docs who did not know what I had and called me crazy!!

Sinusitis, Hay Fever, Allergic Rhinitis Explained

A helpful health guide,
A quick and easy to understand guide about some of the most commonly encountered health issues in the world. A very good and detailed overview of the causes, symptoms and available treatments for sinusitis, hay fever and allergic rhinitis that can prove to be really helpful mostly for someone among the people suffering from hay fever such as I am.

Great book,
In this book I learned symptoms and signs of Sinusitis, Hay Fever and Allergic Rhinitis. I also learned how to treat these diseases with medications and with natural remedies. I really like the conversational tone of the book, which made me feel that the author was talking directly to me. All ideas were very clearly explained and I could understand everything. I liked this book and can certainly recommend it.

Entertaining, and a Nice prepping intro
Written in an entertaining fashion, and nevertheless gives some good ideas about survival. I’m not a prepper by any means — far from it, I picked this book up really just for the price and entertainment value. However, it presented some good basic simple things to do that seem pretty worthwhile. Am I going to go so far as to start training with pistols, stockpiling secret caches of water and MRE’s all over the place? No. Am I going to make sure I have a basic water purification method and other basic supplies with me all the time? Yes. I don’t expect a zombie apocalypse, or even any specific disaster, but even without that making some general emergency preparations seems at least somewhat prudent.
